I'm interested in joining LinkedIn as a new grad, but reading on Blind, it seems that their new grad TC is similar to Microsoft's
- LinkedIn :
125k base, 175k stocks and 20k signing in Cali (from a 2019 post on blind)
- Msft :
110k base, 150k stocks and 50k signing in Washington State (my current msft offer)
Is there any hidden pros that I'm not aware of? Faster promo? Better refreshers?
At a little over 4 yrs of exp and a senior at LinkedIn my comp is around 320k. Looking at levels.fyi to get the same comp you need to be L64 or L65, which really isn't feasible in 4 yrs. I should also be getting Staff in the next 6 months and my comp should be closer to 400k at that point. LinkedIn is easily the better choice for comp. But they said bay area is more expensive and you have no income tax in Washington. So it depends what you're looking for.
